Bellator MMA star Valerie Loureda, one of the latest fighters from mixed martial arts making a move to professional wrestling, continues to keep the summer heat turned up.

While she’s become widely known to WWE fans, she recently made her debut during a live show for the NXT brand. After that, she enjoyed some time outdoors, blessing fans with scorching hot views.

The 23-year-old fighter and recent pro wrestling signee showed off the tiniest of bikinis as she spent time poolside, following her NXT appearance the night prior.

Loureda wore a skimpy pink item featuring a thong bottom, which allowed her to put her buns on display in the first photo of an IG post. The top also barely covered her top, showing the Bellator star is in incredible shape.

Additional images in the series have Loureda showing off more of her fit physique poolside, including some rock-hard abs along with toned arms and legs.

“He never met no one like me,” she wrote in her caption for the post, which quickly captured fans’ and followers’ attention.

Ahead of sharing the scorching hot images via an IG post, Loureda provided a sneak preview via her Instagram Story. Wearing large dark shades to shield her eyes from the sun’s rays, Loureda showed viewers an up and down panning of her bikini from the front.

With the explicit song Plate by Bia playing over the video, Loureda also blows a kiss to fans at the end of one of her clips. Another IG Story slide has her showing off the bottom half of her bikini body with pink flip-flops on her feet.

Loureda made her WWE NXT Live debut

Last month, ESPN revealed that Valerie Loureda has officially signed a multi-year deal with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). The report indicated she’d remain under contract with Bellator MMA and move from Miami, Florida, to Orlando, Florida, to train at WWE’s Performance Center, starting July 19.

On Saturday evening, she was introduced during the WWE NXT Live event in Cocoa, Florida. During part of the show, Loureda was in the ring with two other new stars signed for the women’s roster. The trio introduced themselves to the crowd.

According to a Yardbarker report, WWE NXT’s Ava Raine interrupted the segment, saying she wasn’t impressed by the three new women that she saw in the ring.

It’s unknown if this might lead to a feud involving Raine and the other women as they begin to see in-ring competition. As of this report, there’s been no announcement if Valerie Loureda will appear in any upcoming episodes of the WWE NXT 2.0 television show.

However, one has to think she’ll begin to get lots of training and then practice in the ring as she tries to progress to take on top NXT talents, including Mandy Rose, Zoey Stark, Tiffany Stratton, and Indi Hartwell.

WWE star spoke about Loureda’s ‘promising future’

With a 4-1 record in Bellator MMA, some might wonder if Valerie Loureda has what it takes to succeed as a WWE superstar. She brings valuable experience with her mixed martial arts background, similar to women’s wrestling stars like Ronda Rousey and Shayna Bazler.

WWE star Riddle, who also has a background in MMA, recently spoke about Loureda’s chances for success in pro wrestling and shared what it takes.

During an Instagram live stream interview, he mentioned that when someone goes from MMA to WWE, first and foremost, they need to have been good in MMA. He also says MMA stars making a move to WWE need to have a passion for pro wrestling, and lastly, they need to be charismatic.

“I think she kind of checks majority of the boxes, but until you get in front of a crowd and in front of a camera and on a mic, it’s different. It’s something you gotta get your reps in and do, and it takes time. Nobody’s a natural right off the bat,” Riddle said.

“But, I think she’s got a promising future. She looks amazing. She can work. She can move. I don’t know how she can wrestle, but she can definitely punch and kick and submit, so we’ll see, and only time will tell,” he added.

Those are some strong words of praise and encouragement for Loureda as she works up from talking in the ring during WWE NXT Live shows to fighting in the ring on WWE TV shows.

WWE NXT 2.0 airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on USA.
